The Philips Salon Pro is a powerful hairdryer with a professional design
and performance. Moreover, this hairdryer has features that protect your
hair from damage and give you the reassurance of the best results.
The ion function produces negatively charged ions, which prevent static
and flyaway hair, leaving it frizz-free, manageable and shiny.
Next to the ion function, this hairdryer contains a ceramic element that
produces a gentler warmth than a conventional heating element, thus
protecting your hair from overdrying.

becoming frizzy.
